The department of Cauca beholds strikingly beautiful landscapes, especially in the province of Inza, known in Colombia as La Tierra Adentro. More precisely, this heils from the village of Inza, and the vereda of Palmichal. The terrain is rugged, to say the least, and access is limited given any (frequent) mudslides. However, with the high altitudes of 1,800-1,950 meters, the steep slopes create ideal micro-climates for hot days and cool nights with excellent drainage for the root systems. Farmers are organized under the Asorcafe name, and are rewarded with premium prices for excellent cup quality. This lot is a stunning example of the beautiful coffees from this area, with a fresh fruit sweetness and bursting aromatic profile.
